OATMEAL CREAM PIE COOKIES
For the past month or so I've been following the beautiful blogger Elisabeth & Butter and have become obsessed with her baking pictures. I decided to try out the 'homemade oatmeal cream pie' cookies for myself and they were great.
This is a slightly adapted recipe which I found worked for me but be sure to check out Elisabeth's blog for yourself, it's full of amazing and beautiful things.
Here's what you will need to make around 13 sandwich cookies:
For the Cookies
4oz of Butter
8oz Light Brown Sugar
8oz Granulated Sugar
3 Large Eggs
1tsp Vanilla Extract
20oz Plain Flour
2tsp Baking Powder
16oz Rolled Oats
For the Buttercream Icing Filling
5oz Icing Sugar
Preheat the oven to 170°C and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Adds the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition, then add the vanilla extract.
Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and beat well. Stir in the oats until well combined.
Scoop around a tablespoon of the mixture onto a baking sheet and repeat until you've transferred all of the mix. Make sure you leave some space between the cookies as they will spread out as they bake.
Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove and cool on a rack.
Whilst the cookies are cooling make your icing by creaming together the butter and icing sugar, adding a little water if needed to loosen up the mix.
Spread a dollop of icing onto one cookie and place another on top to sandwich. Repeat until each of your cookies has a partner. Enjoy and make sure to show me your successful bakes.
